be manipulated by the obama administration. do you think that the numbers add up? >> i think the suggestion that the numbers was cooked is relatively ridiculous. that being said. economists at the labor department will admit freely that there is a lot of margin of error in these numbers. a month after each job report these numbers are revised upward or downward. the question of the number came out of the household survey, 800,000 plus number, there is a lot of margin for error, possibly as much as 400,000. that is admitted by folks within the labor department, as well. i think you can't get too hung up on the overall numbers because typically these are revised upward or downward. that tends to happen a month later when we stop paying attention. >> heather: what will the numbers do in terms of swaying voters' opinions, specifically undecided voter? do you expect to see a change in the polls as a result of this? >> it's a tough question. i generally think the jobs reports do not move as much of opinion of voting public with the amount of noise in the d.c. bubble so to speak. with all the rest
here on a mission. congressman ryan to criticize the obama administration's failures and republican solutions while vice president biden was defending the presidential record and also complaining about the republican plan for the nation. >> i will be very specific -- >> reporter: vice president joe biden wasted no time challenging congressman paul ryan's take on foreign policy. >> with all due respect that's a bunch of malarky. not a single thing you said is accurate. >> reporter: the vice president and ryan clashed over the economy. taxes. and medicare. with the democrat often on the attack. >> they are holding hostage the middle class tax cut. about time they take some responsibility. >> reporter: but ryan fired back. he slammed the obama administration's economic record. >> this is not what a real recovery looks like. we need real reforms for a eal recovery and that's what mitt romney and i are proposing. >> reporter: after several heated exchanges ryan said romney's performance last week is motivating the vice president. >> i know you're under a lot of duress to make up for los
administration all over again, especially when it comes to foreign policy. how does that sit with you? obama adviser robert gibbs and newt gingrich can agree on how mitt romney will say anything to get elected. >> mr. speaker, you mentioned that your opponent mitt romney had a problem with being dishonest in the primary. was he dishonest when he said that? >> i think he's clearly changed. >> romney's positions have changed. the only path for the white house is for voters to pretend the changes never happened. get your cell phones out. want to know what you think. who do you trust when it comes to foreign policy decisions? text a for president obama, text b for mitt romney to 622639. we'll bring you the results later on in the show. you can leave a comment on our blog as well. joining me tonight is former chief of staff at the state department during colin powell's term and the visitoring professor at the college of william and mary. cornell, good to have you with us tonight. >> good to be here, ed. >> you heard the speech today. what is fact, what is fiction in mitt romney's foreign policy?
: in a move that is beneath the dignity of the oval office, it appears that the obama administration changed the monthly jobs report for political gain. after he was crushed at the denver debate, the labor department announced that the unemployment rate dropped magically to 7.8% in september. and the job registered more than 800,000. that's one of the biggest one-month jumps in 29 years. let me say this one more time. the biggest jump since 1983, convenient, considering that barack obama finds himself in the midst of perhaps the worst political week of his life. while the president claims that the unexpected news is a sign that america is, quote, moving forward, there are a growing number of skeptics that are crying foul. chief is the former g.e. ceo jack welch. unbelievable job numbers. they can't debate so they change the numbers. he appeared earlier today on "your world." >> these numbers don't smell right when you think about where the economy is right now. every economist predicted roughly 90,000 to 120,000. this economy doesn't feel like the employment improved this level. it is just -
to trade. >> reporter: the obama administration asserted that doing such tough crackdowns on china could lead to a trade war of the fastest growing economy in the word and they said that mr. romney hasn't been entirely pure when it comes to doing business with china himself in his private life and private business experience. the romney campaign says it is all excuses and time for the u.s. government to stop putting up with china's trade practices and currency manipulation and romney says he would take steps on day one to correct that practice. >> the debate coming up quickly. right off the top we showed viewers governor romney in ohio from early talking about success and alluding to how much fun he had on the first presidential debate. now, a couple of days away from the next one and i understand he will be off the trail preparing for that. what else? >> reporter: that's right. talking about the debate last week has been one of his biggest rallying cries in front of big crowds ever since it happened. seems to have been a big huge momentum boost for mr. romney. he did debate prep with hi
was the critique leveled by paul ryan of the foreign policy of the obama administration was essentially stylistic. that the foreign policy rhetoric is insufficiently tough, that there isn't this performance of american toughness that is insufficient to paul ryan and here's a mon taj of how that sounded. >> we wouldn't refer to bashar assad as a reformer. we're not projecting weakness abroad. we shouldn't have called bashar assad a reformer. this invites weakness. >> the bashar assad a reformer. that was his only line on syria policy. largely was rhetoric kalt. now when you talk the three hot spots in the world, not necessarily in the entire world, which is iran, the war in afghanistan and syria, there wasn't as far as i can tell any policy disagreement that they were leveling. take a look. >> these are the most crippling sanctions in the history of sanctions. >> thank hechks we had these sanctions in place. >> what more would they do other than put american boots to the ground. >> nobody is proposing to send troops to syria. >> we are leaving in 2014, period. >> we agree with the administration o
the heart, nor does this administration. this administration, i believe, from what i've read of obama and reading his books, just go to his books and you will find that is not about america. he's about other issues that are to tear apart this country. was night's date, i think, very, very telling. again, i will go back to the smirking and gyrations that joe biden was going through were just entertainment and fluff, does like most of the four years he has been vice president. he has danced around issues and absolute fact that needs to be addressed. host: danny, what do you think about what she had to say? >> i judge people based on what they have done and not what they're planning to do. host: we appreciate your time this morning. ellie in south carolina, what did you think of last night's debate, on the mitt romney line? caller: hi, i just think biden was a bully. i thought as americans we were supposed to be against bullying. the other thing is the whole obama administration has done nothing but raise taxes on middle-class. i am a middle-class person and my tax cut was gone out of my

, governor romney talked about apologies from the obama administration. was that appropriate in the middle of the crisis? >> on that same day, the obama administration was in that same position. they disavowed their own statement they put up earlier in the day in cairo. it is never too early to speak out for our values. we should have spoken out right away. we should always stand up for peace, democracy, individual rights. we should not be imposing these devastating defense cuts. when we equivocate on our values, it make us look weak. when we look weak, our adversaries are much more willing to test us. >> that is a bunch of malarkey. this lecture on embassy security. the congressman cut embassy security in his budget by $300 million below what we asked for. so much for the embassy security. governor romney, before he knew the facts, before he knew that the ambassador was killed, he was out making political statements. he was panned by the media around the world. this talk about this weakness, i do not understand what my friend is talking about. this is a president who has done everything h
